Abstract (in English)

This paper discusses heritage site setting protection based on the analysis of redevelopment of West Market in the Tang Dynasty, a famous heritage site in Xi’an. Although there are many aspects related to heritage site protection, three layers of them are of the most important. The first layer is the city they rest in. The particular heritage site for protection has to be taken in the scope of macro region. At the same time, the city should provide holistic condition for the heritage site protection. The second level is the area larger than the heritage site. This area could be divided into three parts – the core, strictly controlled area, style and features harmonized area. Each area should have corresponding building regulations. The third level is the core. Based on excavated information, cultural background, ancient layout pattern, and economic and political factors, the author explores sustainable ways for heritage site protection.
